The GRAMMY Museum commemorates GRAMMY-winning comedian George Carlin. The exhibit marks the third display in the Museum’s comedy series, following previous tributes to Rodney Dangerfield and Joan Rivers.

“Ever since I became the keeper of my dad’s stuff in 2008, I have enjoyed sharing little bits of it with friends and comedians. But to know that his fans will now get to see some of it, makes my heart swell with joy. I am thrilled that the GRAMMY Museum is creating a place for his stuff.”
-Kelly Carlin

“George Carlin helped redefine the art form of stand-up comedy. He used his talent to not only entertain, but to question conventional wisdom and social injustices. With this latest display in our comedy series, we continue to spotlight some of the greatest comedy acts, many of whom have been recognized by the GRAMMY Awards.”
-Bob Santelli, GRAMMY Museum Executive Director
